HC Deb 19 December 1945 vol 417 cc1471-2W
Mr. P. Freeman

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is the intention to recognise the new Government in Austria under Prime Minister Figl.

Mr. Noel-Baker

Herr Figl has sent to the Allied Commanders a list of the members of the new Government. The authority of this Government will extend throughout Austria, but, like the previous Government of Dr. Renner, it will, on the same terms, be subject to the supreme authority of the Allied Council.
